October Bee Blocks

Bee blocks were short and sweet this month, and I have a new crush. The maple leaf block that Katie/kldemare had That Stash Bee make were just a delight, and I'm trying to figure out when I can make some for myself.

Debbie/Blue.Ridge.Girl chose Social Climber blocks for FAITH Circle, a pattern by Pat Fryer of Villa Rosa designs.
I accidentally cut too many colored fabric strips, so went ahead and made an extra 'combo' block per Debbie's specifications.

Pretty painless, which suited me just fine.

W.i.P. Wednesday

It's been about a month since I reported in for W.i.P. Wednesday, but the good news is all the projects listed in that post are done! I'm working on a couple of projects this week, the main one being this mass of color.
I was inspired by both Poppyprint's Chess on the Steps, and All the Colours from shecanquilt - two quilts I keep going back to again and again. It has been suggested the piece I created looks like Montana, and I can't disagree. But I'm planning on trimming it up, adding some borders, and then who knows what - the truest kind of w.i.p.

As leader-enders, I've been making more cross-stitch blocks (tutorial by Pile O'Fabric). I'm working my way through my 3rd Kona Ash charm pack, and when I'm done with that, I think I'll finalize my design. There's no science to what scraps I'm using in these other than size, so it'll be kinda crazy scrappy.

So stay tuned. Lots to be decided to get these two to the finish line.
